Global is local. Local is global.

At the Gillings School, we work in all 100 North Carolina counties and in 60+ countries. Local and global health content infuses our courses and degrees. Through partnerships at home and abroad, our students and faculty transform health around the world and in our backyard.

Our Research, Innovation and Global Solutions office promotes and advances the School's global health activities in research, service, practice and teaching through partnerships, internships, outreach and communications.
